What are Vitamin B12 injections?

What are Vitamin B12 Injections?

Vitamin B12 is the most chemically complex of all the vitamins. It is unique, because it is the only vitamin that contains a metal ion, cobalt (hence its name). The vitamin is a cofactor for two enzymes in mammals like us, one is methionine synthase and the other methlmalonyl-CoA mutase. The molecule that is attached to the cobalamin is called a donor. The two most common donors in supplements are cyanide (making cyanocobalamin B12, or cyano B12), and methyl (making methylcobalamin B12, or methyl B12). Other forms you might find are hydroxocobalamin and adenosylcobalamin.
